Hello all. I'm a former owner of a Moon i5.3 integrated amp that died. My options for warranty service include a fully decked out i3.3 for free, or a B stock i7 which will cost me an additional $2k Canadian dollars total. Current speakers are B&W 804S. I suspect my original i5.3 blew fuses due to me being hard of hearing, and living in a location that allows me to really turn it up on occasion. It basically blew a fuse about every 6 months or so, and was extremely well ventilated.
My concerns are spending an additional $2k for an integrated amp from 2007.
Any comments, suggestions or advice please. Please note these are my only two options since it seemed silly to spend $ for a 340i was basically has the same sonic qualities with a somewhat "prettier" external look.
Thanks in advance.
